1. A 5 coulomb charge has 5,000 joules of electric potential energy due to its position in an electric field. What is the electric potential at that point in the field?

2. Two parallel plates, one positively charged, one negatively charged, have a uniform electric field between them. (The field lines point from positive to negative.) Where between the plates is the electric potential greatest?
